This is a very unusual film about someone who has chosen to live in a remote jungle on the island of Maui in Hawaii, living out his understanding of Buddhism in a natural environment.
Michael Behrens was something of a mathematics prodigy, who studied and made contributions in his field up and till the age of 29 when he decided to take a break and went to Hawaii for the first time.
At some point he has also studied under a Tibetan lama and most of his understanding of Buddhism stems from this. He lives basically as a hermit in a very remote setting, that he constantly has to keep clear, where he has built himself a house, and has a lovely garden.
The film includes extracts from interviews with Michael in which he talks about how his understanding of mathematics, quantum theory and emptiness shape the way he sees the world, and how he puts that understanding into practice.
